DATAx Gaming Analytics Summit in San Francisco

Posted May 8, 2019 by Ben Smith, Senior Product Marketing Manager

According to a recent report from Newzoo and Arm, the Mobile Gaming market is expected to top $100 billion by 2021, up from $56 billion in 2017.

As the global adoption of smartphones continues to expand, so too does the use of mobile and online gaming. To capitalize on this growth, game developers are looking for new and innovative ways to monetize their gaming base with paid expansions, loot boxes and other in-game purchasing tactics that drive revenue after initial game download or purchase – all of which require the heavy use of data and advanced analytics.

The Gaming Analytics Summit, part of DATAx San Francisco held from May 14th – 15th, provides a platform for leading executives to share unique insight into the innovations that are driving success in the world’s most successful gaming companies. Plan on attending? Vertica is sponsoring this year’s Gaming Analytics Summit and will have staff available at the event to talk through your gaming data use cases, challenges and goals.
